Default Did Formula stop making performance boats?

On the Formula website the Fastech and/or the high performance are no longer listed among models available.

Yes they did stop. Several years ago.

I recently saw a 2019 382 listed for sale....might be the last one they ever made.

I suspect if you pay enough that they would dig out the molds and make another one.

I spoke with them last week and they said if someone wants a FD38 they will continue to make them with a required deposit down.

Yes I saw a 2019 and thought a 2018 for sale. I was surprised I didn't see them listed. I went from a 272 to a 357 performance boats. Then I went to a 400 ss. Loved the 400 but would like to get back into a high performance model.

LOL, the key is pay enough! Several years ago after NorTech switched most production to CCs, a friend asked me to call Terry Sobo up and ask if they still produced their 39 NT. TS laughed, said not really, but for the right price we can figure something out.

The last new 292 fastec I saw I think was over $250k with small blocks. Can’t imagine what they’d want to basically do one offs now.

Formula of Missouri has a used 2018 382 with 20 Hrs on it that they want $400K for, and they have 2 what they are calling 2020's new with no price. so yea, I'd be scared to ask for the price on a 1 off 292.
